Re: Browser choice
Some people who had the update installed automatically and regretted it,
found they could not uninstall it and even using system restore to a
previous checkpoint didn't remove it. In fact some posters are advising a
registry hack to stop it running.
I can only think that in your case the update failed to install correctly in
the first place.
I opted not to install it so cannot really comment further.
